About this title


Stanley Marcus was undeniably America s Merchant Prince. He created his own legend by becoming a fashion authority without parallel, an unerring arbiter of taste, a marketing genius, and a ham-like showman in the mold of Phineas T. Barnum. His unique talents transformed Neiman Marcus from a Dallas specialty store into a glittering internationally-known and respected retail institution.
Thomas E. Alexander traces the history of the company, tells the colorful life story of Mr. Stanley, and shares his personal behind-the-scenes memoir of his sometimes tumultuous association with the man and the store. Humorous anecdotes clearly illustrate that there was much more to Stanley Marcus than was ever seen by the public eye. Photographs of celebrities such as Princess Grace of Monaco, Sophia Loren, John Wayne, Brigitte Bardot, and Queen Sirikit of Thailand serve to emphasize the world-wide appeal of Neiman Marcus and the man behind it all for over fifty years.

About the Author:

Thomas E. Alexander retired from Neiman Marcus as Executive Vice President after nearly twenty years with the company. A former U.S. Air Force officer and rancher, he is an award-winning author of four military history books. A graduate of the University of Colorado, Alexander also holds a Masters Degree in Military Studies. He was appointed to a second term as a Commissioner on the Texas Historical Commission by Governor Rick Perry in 2009.
Tom and his wife Capy live in the Texas Hill Country.
